The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has told the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) that its resort to blackmail cannot sway Nigerians from the truth.
According to the PDP, Nigerians are already aware of how the APC has been allegedly frustrating the National Assembly by creating illegal impeachment processes.
Spokesman for the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, said Nigerians know those who set security agents after federal legislators.
He said in a statement that “We are not amazed that the APC, in its characteristic shambolic denials, will turn around to point accusing fingers at our repositioned party and members for the situation in the National Assembly, when the echoes of their open threats, tantrums, verbosity and loquaciousness against our legislators are yet to evaporate from the public space.
“The APC is pretending not to remember that the Buhari Presidency deliberately kept the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) budget submitted to it since February till July when it presented it to the National Assembly and curiously demanded that the fund be vired from the constituency project fund of lawmakers.
“Nigerians will recall that as a patriotic and responsible party, the PDP raised the flag and pointed out that bringing the budget in July, at the time the National Assembly was already going on annual vacation, was rather late and asking that the fund be vired from constituency project fund was sinking.”
